The Timney Calvin Elite
Series Triggers now features Carbon Nitride Coating, which allows
the opportunity to provide you with the highest quality trigger
available anywhere. The thermochemical process simultaneously
diffuses nitrogen and carbon into the surface of ferrous metals.
This coating is substantially harder than hardened tool steel and
increases the long-term wear, provides exceptional corrosion
resistance, far surpassing the military salt water corrosion
standards and increases lubricity to your trigger. This provides
your Timney with a lifetime of smooth edges because we understand
the importance of, “Every shot counts.”
For the discriminating shooter, demanding the utmost performance
from their trigger, Timney has created a new line of triggers
designed to be robust and yet delicate enough to be set with a pull
weight as low as 8 ounces. An engineering accomplishment, the Calvin
Elite series of Timney Triggers feature wear components that are
made from A2 tool steel, heat-treated to Rockwell 58 and
Teflon-nickel coatings. Sears are wire EDM cut and triggers are CNC
machine using state-of-the-art robotics. The lightweight 6061-T6
aluminium housings are CNC machined and anodized Timney Elite Gold.
The Calvin Elite Series of triggers are named for Calvin Motley,
Timney’s design genius, who is responsible for such award-winning
triggers as the Timney AR drop-in trigger, Remington 700 with unique
trigger blocking safety and loads of other critically acclaimed

Jewell HVR Trigger - Replacement Trigger for Remington 700
Optional factory type safety and bolt release (made from 4130 sheet
stainless) function "better than the original". Also offered is a
safety that sits inside the trigger bow for those so inclined.
Jewell simply recommends lighter fluid to flush any crud from the
module (if it should get dirty) after each barrel cleaning.
For those unfamiliar with Jewell triggers, they are considered by
the cognoscenti of rifle shooting to be the very finest made.
Nothing is spared in their construction; heat treated 440 stainless
steel for internals, 330 stainless for the side plates and all
internal parts are stainless. The complete high grade stainless
steel construction means very little potential for any corrosion.
The First step in this component swap is to remove the factory
The HVR is fabricated as a complete self contained unit.
All adjustments on the Jewell can be made externally via the allen
After thoroughly cleaning and making a visual inspection of the cuts
in the receiver for any burrs or irregularities and we are ready to
begin installing the Jewell HVR.
This is simply done in the reverse order.
Slide trigger module into place and gently tap in the front securing
pin and place the Bolt stop in the slot parallel the trigger cut in
the receiver. It is helpful to use a slave pin or 2nd drift punch to
hold parts in place and free up a hand. Rotate the Jewell trigger
module into the receiver and slip the drift punch into rear hole
from the left side. Place the bolt stop spring coil down into the
small cut alongside the bolt stop (Long arm forward and bent leg
fitting into the trigger cut), press downwards and slide the 2nd
drift punch through to hold everything in place. Rotate the rear of
the HVR into place making sure the leg of the bolt release engages
the notch in the bolt stop.
Gently tap the rear stop pin into place with the tapered end first
until it is just "peeking" through the opposite side of the pin
hole. This should leave about .050-.060" of the pin exposed above
the bolt stop. Now that everything is officially reassembled, insert
the bolt and carefully function check the unit by loading some dummy
rounds or snap caps and vigorously cycling the action with the
safety in the "OFF" position. The firing pin should not fall, if it
does readjustment may be necessary. Do not try for a benchrest type
weight or release! Once again, state of the art engineering
If you own a Remington 700 (or similar "cloned" action), wish to
dramatically improve the trigger, and will accept absolutely no
compromises in function or performance, get the Jewell HVR.
We can supply and fit Arnold Jewell trigger units, if you require.
